    Is your predictive text set on UK English? Not sure if that is exactly what it is called, but I am on an iPhone, use the predictive text and don't have any issues with using full words. But I think it was set to US English when I got it, and the US spelling is rubbish!

    I think some minor abbreviation is fine, it's just words like
    dat
    cuz
    wat
    n (which I assume is text speak for 'and')
    wld (would)
    cld (could)
    ....etc
    that drive people a bit crazy and make posts really painful to read.

    Unfortunately even if you change it to UK English it still auto corrects words like 'initialise' to 'initialize'. Drives me nuts, and I always override the Z spelling (I have changed mine to UK English, was hoping to overcome that).

    Yeah, that annoys me too. Sometimes I remember and hit the X instead of space so it won't change it, but most of the time it's a delete and redo the last 2 letters! But I still love my iPhone anyway

    In Australia we use UK English, not US English.
    And there's and there is mean exactly the same thing. The apostrophe (') means that there is a letter/s missing (ie the I is missing). The same as don't and do not, the apostrophe just shows where the missing 'o' was...
    If you're meaning there/they're/their, then check out the last link that was posted, it shows when you use each form.

    There have been a few posts throughout the thread where members have asked questions and we have answered them, so this thread is doing that too. Feel free to as any questions! And thanks for making the effort to type properly now. It really does make your posts a lot easier to read. I have to admit I have seen you post in other threads and have skipped the post because it was just too much.

    You can choose when you want to use contractions; there is no right or wrong. Generally if it is an official document you would use the two separate words though. Often where people go wrong is when they use a different word instead of the contraction. Eg your instead of you're (you are), his instead of he's (he is).
